Mercedes-Benz to launch the new GLS in India tomorrow

Mercedes-Benz to launch the new GLS in India tomorrow

Mercedes-Benz India will launch the new GLS SUV tomorrow. This vehicle is basically the facelifted GL-Class, which will now be called the GLS according to Mercedes' new nomenclature.

The GLS gets some cosmetic changes to enrich the looks of the ageing vehicle. Upfront, the new grille features a bigger tri-star logo and the brawny look is further accentuated by the new front bumper. The car features the automaker's signature Multi-Beam lamps with LED DRLs. The silhouette is almost the same as the predecessor. However, new LED tail lamps and a new bumper at the back are tastefully done and in line with the changes in the front.

The cabin is also updated taking the luxury quotient higher. A tablet-like 8-inch screen occupies the space in place of the integrated infotainment display from the earlier model. This comes paired to a new touch pad. Then there’s the three-spoke steering wheel, which now comes draped in Nappa leather. Mercedes is also offering an optional air ionization system to improve the interior cabin air quality.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS is powered by a 3.0-litre V6 bi-turbo diesel mill that will be offered in two states of tune. The GLS450 4MATIC churns out 362bhp of power and the GLS350d 4MATIC produces 255bhp of power. On the transmission front, both engines will come mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox.

The Mercedes-Benz GLS will be positioned at the top of the carmaker's range of cars. Since the cabin has a similar layout to that of the luxurious S-Class, and offers premium features, it is rightly called as the S-Class of SUVs. We can expect the prices to start at Rs 80 lakh (ex-showroom New Delhi).
